The Mantis Fangire (マンティスファンガイア, Mantisu Fangaia), whose true name was The Deads' Miscalculation equals The 4:36 Lie (亡者の誤算＝４時３６分の嘘, Mōja no Gosan wa Yoji Sanjūroppun no Uso), was a member of the Insect Class.
He carried a scythe and a casket that held the remains of Fangire, which he resurrected as mindless slaves to with the intent of killing Maya for her transgressions against Fangire law.
